Apologies for being late with my review...some of my comments may no longer be relevant... Although the hotel is a lovely, imposing place and we had a large room with a beautiful view across the bay over to Portofino, we were a bit disappointed with some things. Take for example, things like the mis-matched pillowcases on the bed, the curtain... More

We stayed here as part of a Globus tour and were lucky enough to get a very large corner room with huge windows and stunning day and night views. We had twin beds and a settee (used it for our luggage). The bathroom was large with double sinks. The large separate shower did not work consistently, hard to control water... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Bristol with a tour group and were surprised that we were allocated a lovely room with stunning views across the bay to Portofino. Often, when travelling in a group, we expect views of a wall or across ugly rooftops - but not on this occasion! The staff at reception were very friendly and professional... More

First signs are promising . A stunning location and beautiful view. A charming and helpful receptionist. But then, just as you think you a going to be wowed by a Grand Tour experience, it lets itself down . Wifi you have to pay for...in a premium hotel? A bathroom with no bath, just a cramped shower. Cheap plastic cups in... More

A large group of us stayed in this glorious hotel in Sept, it is a beautiful hotel with stunning views across to Portifino. The rooms are excellent, very clean and comfortable with lovely well fitted bathrooms, we found all members of staff to be very helpful with the exception of the restaurant manager. The walk into the town is a... More

This hotel is gorgeous and for the price extremely good value There were a couple of negatives - poor wifi connection in lobby and none in rooms unless you pay 7 euros a day!. Also you don't expect to pay for parking at a hotel out of town and so prestigious but here they want 10 euro's a day! That's... More

We stayed at Grand Hotel Bristol Resort & Spa Rapello while on a GLOBUS tour. It is a lovely hotel with a great ambiance. The rooms are a bit on the smaller side and very quaint. The patio had a very nice view to the sea with some beautiful live music playing. It is about 15 - 20 min scenic... More
